Market Mincer Man
Mincer man provides the sound track to our early morning visits to the market.
I think mincer man is fantastic. He’s cute and he’s definitely got the moves. I’ve never seen or heard anything like this. Darling Man thinks he’s pretty ordinary — he says this is how his Dad chops meat.
I wanted to try to capture the get-down-and-groove sound of mincer man chopping. I may have gotten slightly carried away with the iMovies features. Bear with me. This is my first attempt at editing video. I took the footage on my aging Sony Cybershot, carrying Miss M in my other arm, so the footage is shaky. Think film noir meets Hollywood … in a Thai wet market.
So here in all his video glory is the star of our local market – mincer man!
And here, in all his feline glory is the market cat.
Mincer Man surprised the hell out of me on one of our early visits by walking up to me and saying in English: “Madam, do you see? The cat has different colour eyes.” (So you see, mincer man is smart as well as cute!)
